this is still the same insect as the last one.. mind the narrow depth of field. I used Canon PowerShot S2 IS and Raynox MSN-202 converter lens.

Must be quite some magnification if one can see the ommatidia that well!

that's about 24 dioptri. the focus is very, very shallow though.

Do you happen to know how much magnification that would be in relation to life size, like 1:1, 2:1 etc.? (I suck at working with diopter values.)
I can imagine that, it's the same when I stick my close-up lens to the macro lens, or use a reversed lens.

well. I actually don't know the magnification you mentioned for this pic. the real thing was very small, though. The eyes were < 1 mm. I was using the full strength of the lens which was 24 diopter.

i tried doing this once... i ended up with a squished mosquito 'coz my camera hand automatically moved when it got too itchy... :XD:

hahaha.. I guess you just need to develop the immunity to itch. There's still many mosquitos to shoot, and you still have a lot of blood :P :) thanks tarushiru!
